Phoenix, Arizona — The Phoenix Police department released body-camera footage of an officer involved shooting that occurred on May 1, 2022, just after 12:00 p.m., in the roadway to the south of 19th Avenue and Southern Avenue. Officers from the South Mountain Precinct were in the parking lot of a gas station near 19th Avenue and Southern Avenue working through an unrelated matter when they were notified of a man with a machete in an open field to the south. Officers contacted the man and gave him commands to drop the machete as he walked eastbound in the field towards 19th Avenue. Officers continued to order the man to drop the machete while following him as he walked southbound in the roadway of 19th Avenue. The man was shouting in Spanish. Due to the language barrier, officers were unable to understand what he was saying.

There were vehicles driving by on 19th Avenue and pedestrians walking on the nearby sidewalks. While the man was in the middle lane of 19th Avenue, an officer with a stunbag shotgun approached him and gave repeated commands to drop the machete. The officer delivered several rounds from the stunbag which did not seem to affect the man. He continued to yell in Spanish while advancing towards the officer with the machete still in hand. The officer transitioned to his handgun and fired, striking the man and ending the threat. Officers approached the man, removed the machete, and began rendering first aid. Officers continued until Phoenix Fire responded and assumed care. The man was transported to a local hospital in critical condition where he remains hospitalized but will later be booked into jail on one count of aggravated assault on a police officer once his condition improves. There were no injuries to other community members or officers.

  1. Does anyone know why less lethal shotguns are usually never loaded? It seems like every video I see where less lethal is an option, every time the shotgun comes out it always needs to be loaded. I don’t know much about the less lethal shotguns but I feel like if they were loaded already the officers would be able to deploy less lethal faster. Is there a specific reason or protocol in place that prohibits them from being loaded?

  2. Attempted Murder by Cops! Tazer? Non-Lethal shots missed? Really? He was ill, not a killer! I am so ashamed of our Police! My son is a cop and I hope he has better love for people! Hope you don't get into a argument with Phoenix Police! Not just one shot to disable, lets shoot him 5 or 6 times, that is our training!
